Dance Central 3 Designer: Kinect Developers Need to Do Better Than “Oh, It Works”

Kotaku, Evan Narcisse- "Last week, I talked to the people who make the best Kinect games. The topic of discussion? One of the worst Kinect games.

I chatted with Dance Central 3 project lead Matt Boch what he thought about the state of Kinect game development, starting off with the mind-numbingly wretched Steel Battalion. Back when Capcom's bungle came out months ago, it was plain to see that the game simply didn't work the way it was supposed to. How does this happen, I asked Boch?"

The story is too old to be commented.

A game like Dance Central doesn't have to be lag free or super accurate. Most people probably wouldn't know if their dancing was being accurately assessed. However, a game like Steel Battalion needs accurate, reasonably lag free controls and the absence of such is a killer. I think there will always be a limitation with this hands free technology. Some games, like Dance Central, are very suitable and games like first person shooters mostly impractical. Although the use of hand gestures and voice control may be useful for some first person shooters in addition to the controller. I think that Kinect 2 will be virtually lag free and at a higher resolution which should allow it to reach its potential, as limiting as it may be.

Aside from this, I have Kinect and it is great fun playing with the kids. There are some very good games for it, including Dance Central, Kinect Sports series and Kinect Fruit Ninja etc.

I was just reading Kotaku's mind-numbingly wretched blog and wondering - is this story another unsubstantiated rumour they'll have to retract in a few hours?
